I found it interesting (to be kind) that Toshiba is marketing a larger 13" tablet in a 16:9 ratio format at a lower res. than Apple already offers in the "new" iPad. Seems like a bit of a marketing faux pas to me. However, I do like the fact that manufacturers are expanding size options in the tablet market. I don't think there's a one size fits all solution, as everyone's needs are slightly different. For example, based on my (albeit limited) experience, tablets (readers) in the 7" - 10" range are a bit too small. That's why I'd really like to see a market for ~12" (11.6" is fine) 16:10 ratio tablets. For me, that seems to be the sweet spot, offering better readability in a portable and handleable size. However, having compared the iPad2 to the "new" iPad side by side, I strongly believe higher res. displays are the way to go in a tablet. I was skeptical at first, but text legibility is markedly better on the higher res.' screen. That's definitely a good thing for those of us whose eyes aren't what they used to be.
